The Thule Hull-a-port XT 848 is a J-style kayak carrier. The Thule Hull-a-port XT gives you the flexibility to carry either one or two kayaks depending on how the upright arm is positioned. The 848 Hull-a-port XT was designed to be easy to use, universal mounting, a tool free installation, and have the ability to be locked down to the crossbars. The Hull-a-port XT works with a variety of different styles of kayaks from white water and recreational kayaks to sea and touring kayaks.

Folds flat when not in use

The Hull-a-port XT can be folded into a flat position while not in use. This allows for better access into parking garages or other low clearance areas, however you do always want to keep in mind the additional height added to your vehicle by having a roof rack.

Can be used to carry either 1 or 2 kayaks

The Thule 848 utilizes a cam lever which allows you to set the angle of the upright arm to one of three different positions, a J-style position, a stacker position, or a flat position. In the J-style position the 848 can carry a single kayak on a slight angle. When positioned in the stacker position the Hull-a-port XT has the ability to carry two kayaks up on edge. One kayak will be set into the 848 kayak carrier while the other is set onto your crossbars and tied to the Hull-a-port XT, we recommend using additional foam pads are to protect your boat. Using the 848 as a stacker to carry two kayaks is predominantly done only for occasional use or if you are carrying white water boats. If you are commonly carrying 2 kayaks a second set of 848s is recommended as it will be easier to load, unload and provides better protection to for your kayak.

Tie down straps included

The Thule 848 includes a pair of tie down straps to secure your boats onto the roof rack as well as a pair of cam buckle bow and stern tie downs to secure the kayak to the front and rear of your vehicle. If your vehicle does not have existing front and rear tie downs you can use the Thule 529 Hood Loop for the front tie down points and the Thule 530 Quick Loop for the back tie down.

Universal, no tools mounting hardware

The 848 includes an integrated, easy to use, universal mounting system which is designed to fit square, aero style after market crossbars, as well as most factory installed crossbar systems. The tools free installation system can be installed or removed in a matter of minutes and can be locked to your crossbars by purchasing a Thule 512 Two Pack of Locks.
